Where have all the Windowblinds Master Skinners gone?

You are missed...

Friday, November 22, 2013 by LightStar | Discussion: Skinning

I have 4 out of the 5, and sometimes all 5 Master Skins on the front page of WC right now. I spend 8-10 hours a day, 7 days a week designing and trying to improve my skins, and when they are done I want to post them to the site, but I can't. I can't because I feel like I should wait for others to submit their Master Skins so they have front page time, but alas, no one submits and I am beginning to wonder why.

There are 44 Master Windowblinds skins in the gallery right now, and since I became a Master around a year and a half ago, 20 of them are mine and I have one other finished (Allure) and just waiting for time to pass, and one more (Brilliance) in the works!

So where are the other Master Skinners?  I know why vStyler and Xiandi are not skinning right now, but what about the other Masters?  TomRichter, MikeB314, adni18, theAVMAN, Vampothika and other Master Skinners... where are you? I miss seeing your works, and I am sure others miss them too.

Quoting DrJBHL, reply 89I think that not being 'forgotten' also involves participation...not to the exclusion of everything else in that person's life, but with a certain 'presence'...

like updating classics (Concept, Continuum, sheesh! So many!!!)

I'll agree with that. Presence is always a factor. Also, I looked and there are a lot of Masters that have been absent for over a year.

My reason was my computer crashed and I've been using a 13" laptop. Finally was able to get a new computer, a couple of months ago (sadly no Win8).

Updates? Concept (maybe, though I've already updated it once) but not Continuum. It's still some what new with Win7 (Master skin).

Oh, and I have (2) updates coming this week, with more skins on the way.

They can have more 'value' than Karma points .....afterall...when Doc has 2k of them it's obvious the system is screwy....

Aesop  Jafo does have a point there.

I believe somewhere I read that when the site was fixed awhile ago


WC site fixed ? Judging by the look and technique it ist still stucked in mid 2000 something. Sorry, but the site and the forums are totally 'antique'. I still don't get why Stardock still wastes time (and money) on this and is not moving on. Sheesh, freeware cms-frameworks have more sexappeal and functions than this ancient site. Not to speak of the forums. And all this although they are hosting Neowin and could easily build on that know-how. InvisionBoard is such  good BBS.

Just my 1 year rant.
